Beatus Achacius oravit dicens:
Domine Iesu Christe
Qui propter te crucifiximur
Exaudi orationem nostram
Et concede ut
Qui cumque per nos
Tuam misericordiam invocaverint
Eos exaudias.

Concedesque eis
Remissionem peccatorum
Et non permitas eos
In peccatis mori
Et dona eis sanitatem
Animarum et corporum.
Sante Achaci, ora pro nobis.

The blessed Achatius prayed, saying:
"Lord Jesus Christ,
whom we crucified because of Thyself
Answer our prayers
and grant that
whosoever invokes Thy compassion
through us
be answered.

And grant them as well
the remission of their sins
And let us not die in sin.
Accord them good health
of body and spirit."
Holy Achatius, pray for us.
